Londonderry police chief probing online 'CopBlock' allegations
Police Chief Bill Hart said the department hadn’t received a formal complaint regarding the incident earlier this month, but he said he’s treating the case as seriously as any other complaint.
Cop Block’s website said it is “a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goal of police accountability.”
The author of the post claimed he and his wife were traveling through town that morning when a police SUV pulled them over.
According to the post’s author, the officers refused to call an ambulance and then asked the couple about the clear inspection sticker on their car.
The poster identified as Roberts also claimed a second request for an ambulance call was dismissed by the police officers he identified as “Wiggins and Sgt. Mccutherson.”
Roberts claimed one of the officers said, “You don’t need no goddamn ambulance,” and after seeing the CopBlock.org sticker on their car, sent them on their way saying, “Get out of my face. You Cop Blockers make me want to puke.”
However, he stressed the importance of citizens speaking up when it comes to their concerns involving the local police.
He stressed that “every single complaint made to the police department is reviewed and addressed accordingly.”
Last year the department received five complaints Hart described as “internal affairs, noting the department has about 65 employees.
